An important entry posted last night has disappeared from the main page
This is a major symptom—the worst symptom so far—of the florid schizophrenic HAL-like destructive insanity of my Lenovo laptop with Windows XP. Yet the event does not seem a total disaster resulting in the total loss of several hours of intense work. The public entry page itself has not seemed to disappear. When last I checked, a couple of minutes ago, it was here. If the preceding hyperlink to the public entry works and still displays, the public page still exists. The public entry can still be reconstituted. It is about my progress in the hospital. The entry address itself is (or rather it was; who knows how long will continue to exist?): http://www.amnation.com/vfr/archives/024377.html. I am copying everything to different applications for security. But because I cannot send an e-mail from the hospital and I don’t have a USB backup drive with me in the hospital I cannot instantly create a secure backup if the laptop proceeds to total breakdown. The laptop is in worse shape than my body, and seemingly far less responsive to treatment.
But fear not: Alan M., who hosts VFR on his own backup site, does an automatic nightly backup of VFR.
